I don't live in America.
I don't have to get used to the evil witch.
Good, so if she does, or doesn't belong to a "cult" won't preclude her from serving on the United States Supreme Court for life......I don't live in America.
I don't have to get used to the evil witch.
Do you not see how societally corrupt that position is?Good, so if she does, or doesn't belong to a "cult" won't preclude her from serving on the United States Supreme Court for life......
I know I don't care what organizations she belongs to, & I will be very supportive of her decisions on the Second Amendment, on the murder of children, & on packing the court, when she votes along with her 5 fellow Conservative Justices, solidifying their majority over the 3 remaining liberal Justices in the minority.
What the fuck are you talking about?Good, so if she does, or doesn't belong to a "cult" won't preclude her from serving on the United States Supreme Court for life......
Sorry fella, I'm a registered Independent (which I will say again, is not a political Party)........I am not beholden to any political party.....but for the time being, in Presidential Election year 2020, the only candidate that stands remotely close to my core beliefs, is Republican....MY President Donald John Trump, who I have already proudly voted for.....& JFYI my vote (absentee ballot) was hand carried into the County I'm registered in's Board of Elections, & the person who hand carried my vote has a receipt acknowledging it's delivery.What the fuck are you talking about?
Nobody said it precluded her from serving in the Supreme Court.
Republicansreally are strange (immoral), confused little people, aren't you?
Actually, if decided by the SCOTUS, it probably would be simply put in words to the affect that 'the Right to an Abortion is not a Federally Protected Right under the United States Constitution - There is no Constitutional Right to an Abortion.'I hope Roe v Wade does NOT get overturned.
You cannot ban abortion. You can only ban the poor from having safe, medically supervised abortion. The wealthy will just fly to Canada, the UK etc. Overturning Roe v Wade will just see backyard abortionists flourishing, death and injuries and permanent infertility etc to some going to backyard abortionists. It would be Prohibition all over again!
And now, after a short week, her nomination will go to the full US Senate for her final confirmation vote prior to becoming an Associate Justice to the United States Supreme Court for Life......America got a close look at the next Justice of the Supreme Court this week. Amy Coney Barrett’s Senate Judiciary hearing concluded and the nomination will now be voted in committee after the traditional one-week waiting period.
Few can argue that Judge Barrett comported herself in an exemplary manner. He brilliance, scholarship and demeanor were complimented by heart-warming insights into her personal life.
Democrats on the panel were stymied as they attempted to make any case against her. She parried every objection, listened politely to the political speeches that were substituted for genuine inquiry and left all with a clear understanding of her impeccable qualifications and unimpeachable integrity.
There were several memorable moments. The “money shot” of the hearing came when Sen. John Cornyn asked what materials she referenced in reciting the facts, holding and even dicta in case after case. Judge Barrett simply smiled and held up a blank sheet of paper.
A more dramatic moment came when her former student, Laura Wolk, testified. There weren’t many dry eyes that witnessed the riveting testimony of Ms. Wolk. Totally blind, Ms. Wolk recounted how Judge Barrett had helped her along the way, allowing her to become the Supreme Court’s first blind law clerk.
The true nature of Judge Barrett was summed up by Ms. Walk who asserted that, “Her brilliance is exceeded only by her compassion.”
Many quietly thought that in 20 years Justice Barrett will be considered as one of the great jurists of our times and that Justice Wolk will be on the bench with her.
Of course there were several less sublime moments. Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono stooped to the classless level of asking Judge Barrett, in front of her children, if she was a sexual assaulter. Sen. Cory Booker asked the judge, who has Black children, if she would denounce white supremacism.
Judge Barrett answered even the absurd questions with grace and dignity.
Throughout the rest of the proceedings Judge Barrett consistently displayed both a powerful intellect and incredible command of the law. She also clearly showed her decency and the judicial temperament that has been her hallmark on the bench.
Senate Democrats had little with which to attack Judge Barrett. They nibbled around her religious beliefs but never really got to them. They know there would be tremendous public backlash if they did. Instead they left it to their allies on the outside to go after her Catholic Christianity.
Others inquired about her family which several on the left have attacked. But that was dispelled quickly by the glowing picture of a loving, if non-traditional, home with amazing children and superb parents. Judge Barrett’s mothering of seven children, including one with special needs and two that are Black adoptees from Haiti, should have been off limits, but sadly those limits are from a bygone era.
The best part of this failed line of questioning came when Sen. John Kennedy asked, tongue planted firmly in his cheek, who does the laundry at the Barrett house.
Much of the Democrats time was taken up in political speech making. They wanted to use the occasion to push their case for the election more than to discuss Judge Barrett’s merits. In the back-and-forth about actual judicial cases and philosophy it was clear that while the Senate liberals claimed Judge Barrett would impose her personal views on the Court that what they really wanted is for her to impose THEIR views on the law.
The essential difference between a constructionist, textualist and originalist like Judge Barrett and the activist progressive liberals was on full display.
In the end, Democrat senators seemed almost resolved to the outcome. They knew that Judge Barrett has impeccable credentials. They know she has the votes to be confirmed.
Sen. Dick Durbin took his closing remarks to graciously offer apology to Judge Barrett for any hurt caused to her children (was he thinking of Sen. Hirono?) in the process. Several thanked Sen. Lindsey Graham, the Republican chair, for conducting a fair hearing.
Sen. Diane Feinstein went so far as to hug Sen. Graham as the hearing concluded. The radical Left reacted by calling for her to step down as the Ranking Member of the Committee. You can’t make this stuff up.
Justice Antonio Scalia, a staunch conservative, was unanimously confirmed. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, his personal friend but philosophical opposite was confirmed with only three negative votes. You have to wonder why there is likely to be virtually unanimity among Senate Democrats, especially since there is no case against Judge Barrett.
When she was confirmed to the Circuit Court of Appeals she received several Democrat votes, including one from Hillary Clinton’s former running mate.
There’s still hope that some Democrats will acknowledge the superb record and qualifications of Judge Barrett and join their Republican colleagues to confirm her.
Here comes Justice Amy .........WASHINGTON – Judge Amy Coney Barrett is poised to become the ninth justice on the Supreme Court on Monday, solidifying a 6-3 conservative majority on the high court that Democrats warn could have lasting impacts on the nation's health care and rights for individuals.
The Republican-led Senate is expected to confirm Barrett to the Supreme Court in a vote Monday evening, capping off a 30-day sprint to place her on the high court before Election Day over Democratic objections.
Barrett, an appeals court judge touted by religious conservatives, needs a majority of the votes in the Senate to be confirmed, a likely outcome in a body where Republicans outnumber Democrats 53-47. There is little Democrats can do to halt the final vote as only one Republican senator, Susan Collins of Maine, said she would vote against Barrett, though liberals have spent days using procedural maneuvers to slow the process and force votes on contentious issues.
The White House is preparing a public swearing-in ceremony later Monday evening after her expected approval by the Senate, officials said, allowing Barrett to quickly join the bench and weigh in on a host of contentious issues set to come before the high court in the coming days..................Continued
We'll see.......we'll see.........Soon to be confirmed Justice Barrett is an Origionalist, & will come to her decisions based on the intent of the American Founding Fathers.......those that wrote our most Sacred Document, the United States Constitution, which for us Americans is, & will always be, the Supreme Law of the Land.........The American Constitution.......Yeah, the conservative majority on SCOTUS always votes to take away rights from individuals and give rights to corporations. Your country is going to become nastier for ordinary people.
You can argue your 'opinion' here in this forum all you wish.You are celebrating the loss of rights for ordinary Americans? Labor laws wound back, environmental laws wound back etc etc.
As to abortion—you cannot ban abiortion, only safe, medically supervised abortions. Backyard abortionists will be flourishing in the states that have closed all abortion clinics. It only bans abortion by poorer women, not the wealthy ones.
You really have not thought any of this through.
None of the decisions by the conservative majority are Originalist.
